In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market priced in the $1 million range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Five-Bedroom Townhouse Right in U Street Corridor
This townhouse near the intersection of 13th and U Street NW is essentially two sections. Upstairs is a three-bedroom, two-bath home with a living room, dining room, kitchen set-up on the first level and three bedrooms on the second. Downstairs is a two-bedroom, two-bath in-law suite. The listing also has secured parking in the back that, depending on the size, may be able to fit two cars.

A Rental Income Producer in Mount Pleasant
Like the listing above, this semi-detached home in Mount Pleasant that hit the market earlier this week is split up into two sections: a three-bedroom home upstairs and a legal two-bedroom, two-bath rental unit downstairs that pulls in $2,400 a month currently. With a 20 percent down payment (at the listing price), the monthly payments would come out to around $2,000-$2,200 when you take into account the rental income. The home also has a front porch and a rear deck, and there is the potential to add parking.
